    Re:   SET vs. SETF

    It occurs to me that SETF is going to be very common now, with
    most of the updating functions flushed.  How about giving it the
    name SET, which I take from point 10 has been flushed in favor of
    (SET (SYMBOL-VALUE s) value)?  I never did understand what the
    "F" stands for anyway.
I introduced this name change last summer for T (Yale Scheme). We're happy
with the change. I second Killian's motion to do the same in Common Lisp.
